Kenny Jackett today admitted Wolves face a team of “terrific passers” that can propel Walsall into the play-offs.
Wolves go to the Banks’s Stadium aiming to equal a club record eight straight wins and seeking a sixth consecutive clean sheet.
Walsall go into the game in eighth place and five points off sixth-placed Peterborough with 12 games left, with Rotherham in fifth a distant 10 points further ahead.
Wolves head coach Jackett believes the Saddlers’ play-off hopes rest on chasing down sixth spot.
“They’ve done very well for the last couple of seasons but they can’t quite make that push into the play-offs,” he said.
“They’ll be having their eyes on Peterborough for the final place.
“Football-wise they’re capable of it. All the players are comfortable on the ball and they try to play the right way, through midfield.
“They’ve got a terrific passing game going there as they have done for several years now.”Subscribe to our Newsletter
